One Poem by Viv Parks

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

My search

I am lost, even with that map
trudged along street after street
until I retreated into myself and wept

I’ve lost count of the times
I’ve now set out to find you
along the way I’ve lost myself

I will set out yet again
retrace those steps
hope to regain my self respect

Forge those rivers
climb each slope
following bends avoiding dead ends

Following my own instincts
whilst I cling to that map
I will find you in the end


Viv Parks is an avid writer of poetry. She loves responding to challenges. In her retirement she now lives by the coast in Southern England and finds much inspiration from the panoramic views of the South Downs.
